For the first time since they’ve started this era of biopics, Lifetime is producing the biopic of someone who is still alive. The network is producing the story of singer Toni Braxton. Unlike Lifetime’s previous biopics for songstresses Aaliyah and Whitney Houston, Toni Braxton is an executive producer for the film so we can bet on it being told accurately from Toni’s point of view. “Toni Braxton: Unbreak My Heart” will chart the singer’s rise to fame, including her financial, health and marital struggles.
Rumor had it that the the singer would play herself in the film but it has been confirmed that newcomer Lex Scott Davis has snagged the starring role. The film will premiere on LifeTime on January 23rd. Following the airing of the biopic, Lifetime will also air a one hour special, “Beyond The Headlines: Toni Braxton” which will include interviews with Toni and her family and friends.
Watch the trailer below.
